Ball mark repair lessons required

This is a decent course but seems that a lot of players on this course do not know how to repair their ball marks on the greens. I’ve always had a rule repair yours repair another. Sometimes I’ve repaired more than 4 on a green so my rule is out the window. Anyway overall the course is decent either SW or NE. I’d still play it even having to repair over 36 ball marks in a round :)

Cart Issues

I always have issues with the carts. Got a flat tire today and had to let two groups pass before they brought another cart. Some dead spots in the fairways but overall decent shape.

Course has made a comeback

Haven't played here in at least 5 years due to declining conditions. Recently read an online review that was positive so figured I'd check it out. Course conditions are much improved from where they consistently were 5-10 years ago. Greens were great maybe a touch slower than I prefer. Fairways are in great shape, tee boxes are good, and rough was healthy. Although I didn't use it, they have a grass driving range that looked in good shape. Really don't have anything bad to say and for the right price we will definitely be back.

Slow Play

Perfect conditions for golf. As expected, pace was slow. Understandable. Unfortunately, an event was planned and golfers were being sent to a single nine hole course, South. For the first 4 holes (all we played), there was two, three, and sometimes four groups playing a single hole. Tee times should be limited to prevent this from happening. Staff was very friendly and offered a rain check for half the rate we paid. Happy for great customer service.

Compass was on Pointe

Had a very enjoyable round at Compass Pointe today. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. We played the South-West combo, as there are four 9-hole tracks. The fairways and tee boxes were is great shape, but the greens could use a bit of work. I believe this is, in large part, likely the result of golfers repeatedly not repairing ball marks. There were too many to count on most greens. A little prodding bu the clubhouse and starter might have some impact, but lazy golfers are difficult to change. All in all, if you are looking for a quality public golf course for a modest price, I highly recommend Compass Pointe.

Would give a higher rating if the course was in better shape. A lot of patchy areas on the tee boxes and fairways. Greens had a lot of repairs that had not been fixed. Greens overall were firm and ran pretty true. I personally think the course plays pretty challenging from the blues. ( 6500 yards or so) Have to hit some quality golf shots . If the course was in better shape , the price I payed would be a steal but prices fairly accurately because of the condition. Staff was friendly and they had Marshall’s out frequently checking the pace of play

Needs Marshals

Took us 3 hours to play the back 9 on Northeast. Not because it was crowded on a Saturday, but because of one rude threesome who would not tee off on par 4 until the group ahead of them were on the green and then took forever once they made it to the green. Called the clubhouse on the 12th hole to see if a marshal could get them moving. Was assured they would try to help, but we never saw a marshal. Apparently the course doesn't care. Ridiculous.

Needs Marshals

Three hours to play the back nine on the Northeast. Not because it was crowded on a Saturday, but because of one threesome who refused to tee off on Par 4s until the group in front of them were on the green and then took forever when they reached the green. Ridiculous. Called the clubhouse to see if a marshal could help get the group moving, but never saw one. Apparently the course doesn't care.

Fun Course; greens way too hard

Compass Pointe is an enjoyable course, fairly priced, and nicely challenging. I enjoyed the day but for the greens. You could hit a towering pitching wedge into a green and it would just not stick; rolling off the green. This happened way too many times. Management needs to do something to make these greens softer. Everything else was fine.

You get what you pay for here

I've Been playing this course now for 3 years and during all that time it has never disappointed,
For $60 I think this course is worth every penny,
This most recent time playing here the greens were perfectly fast,
Fairways are filled in, but they could have used a cut,
And rough was just cut so it was perfect height,
Had a great time playing here and will definitely be back

Great Track

$40 for 18 with a cart and would’ve thought I was playing a bayside version of Kiawah’s Cassique. Fairways have started to come in now that they’ve switched out sod and greens rolled true on the north/south sides. Return of their former groundskeeper has the place looking fantastic. Will definitely be out to play again.

Nice Track

The course is in great shape and the greens are lightening fast. Never play behind the high school kids because they are slow.

Poor shape

This is a challenging and interesting golf course however it’s in pretty bad shape. Rough was uneven and fringe areas were just clumps of grass on bare ground in many places. Fairways were not in great shape either. Greens were generally good and quite fast and true. If there’s a superintendent need to work on seeding and conditions especially around the greens
